That's pretty sweet, but why are you having a hard time finding one? I just pulled up 25 of them for sale on this link: http://autos.aol.com/used-list/make1-Is ... nge-12500/
Thats 25 out of the entire nation vs hundreds if not thousands of everything else. Every time one goes up for sale usually within a day or so they are sold, at lest here in Phoenix.

EDIT: And by the time I looked at the link it went from 25 to 9 for sale.

Odd, I just checked again and again it came up with 25. :?

Okay, now it's very weird. If I use my zip (22405) and no limit on the range, I get 25 matches. If I use the Phoenix zip of 85004 and no limit on range I get 9 matches. No idea why.

The nice thing about the Ferret is with a little work and inguinuity I could mount my semi suto SG-43 Goryunov in the turret.

My concept of a BOV would be a motorcycle slightly larger than an enduro with on/off-road capaiblity and street legal:
simular to the Track 2wd Diesel motorcycle http://www.dieselmotorfiets.nl/

Powerplant : Advanced Propulsion Technologies (Ecomotor's parent company) 40-hp Opposing Piston-Opposing Cylinder multifuel diesel engine
http://www.propulsiontech.com/opocmovie1.html
Modified to use turbocompounding (Energy Recovery Turbine that is Variable Geometry) and a belt-driven centfugal supercharger (indirect turbocharger) custom AeroCharger
http://aerocharger.com/index.php
NO ELECTRONICS - Mechancal direct fuel-injection
Drivetrain : CVT (preferrably hydrostatic with hydraulic regenerative-braking)
again NO ELECTRONIC
Regenerative Braking system could be used to start the diesel.
Variable Displacement swashplate Pump/motor.

My BOV is my FJ Cruiser...


It's a 6 speed manual with locking differential, 3" coilover lift and lots of other goodies...even a rear air mattress that sleeps my 6'3" self relatively comfortably! Soon it'll have a big LED light bar and some Rigid Dually's for the rear.

Why would I want a BOV that runs on oil? In my year and a half of cruising the PNW, I think I only used like 6 gallons aboard my last boat. When I think of TEOTWAWKI, I'm thinking mass fuel shortages are gonna be a big part of the cake. I wan't something big enough to live on and something with an unlimited range. I figure there are enough little islands across the globe that have resourses so tiny that big companies like Exxon and Nestle wouldn't waste their time raping them.

You can have your van. I'm stickin with a full keeled heavy displacement ocean boat. A boat that size is large enough to produce food aboard. Matter of fact, I got a friend with a Formossa 51 that brews his beer aboard. He's got 2 big stainless fermenting tanks in a locker on the starboard side of the main saloon.

A boat that size could make Hawaii from Seattle in 25 days or less. It can store enough provisions to circumnavigate the globe non stop. You put solar panels and a wind generator on it and you could be energy independent withought having to run the genny. Trade with the locals along the way and you just might forget that for the rest of the planet, the world has ended.
Where'd my oh there it is go?.... Dang.
